I'm a month into accutane now and I just stopped getting flaky skin a few days ago. I used to exfoliate and then moisturise.

What did you exfoliate with?

And I'm thinking about putting aquaphor on my face since it works so good on my lips, would this be a bad idea?

I use a baby brush to get it off, and that way it doesn't over exfoliate or irritate the skin. It has worked SO well for me. It's actually one of the things listed on this site, to do. Look around a bit and you'll find a few more ideas. :)

Good luck!

Cetaphil Moisturizing Face Cream has been a God send for my face. It's like 10 bucks a bottle but soo worth it. I have to use it 2-3 times a day but my skin isn't nearly as dry as it was.
